Resting Trace Fossils

Recommended Posts

Visited the local rock cut recently and found these Carboniferous Period ichnofossils. 2 are Arborichnus Repetita and the other (pos/neg plate), I have no idea? Found several like this and haven't got an exact identification of them? Both Arborichnus Repetita measures about 1/4" to 1" in width and the claw marks are about 3" in diameter. Any ideas what this could be would be appreciated!
